Video Games Graduates Getting Worse

David Braben - known and loved by real gamers for Elite among others - has told the ongoing Game Horizon conference in Gateshead today that "We are facing a serious decline in the quality of graduates looking to enter the industry".

Braben is blaming all you liberal arts (you know, meeeeja studies, cultural studies and bloody psychology) students for the fact that video game design graduates can't add, subtract or understand basic physics.

He's more polite than us, saying "The death of maths, physics and computer science graduates is hitting us hard."

But, basically, this means that universities are churning out marketing people who can go forward out of the box 24/7 with gaming experience synergies that overlight the intense creative/play interface forefronting modern (and legacy) consumer propositions.

The story is too old to be commented.
